A one-sentence story: Confused

 

Your actions
make it hard for me
to take you seriously.

A one-sentence story: Effervescence 

 

Effervescently, I bubbled
like a freshly opened
bottle of sparkling water,
determined to be
full of joy all day long.

Tripping

 

Tripping over my feet today…
It’s as if my legs
can no longer carry me.

Standing all day,
it’s just what I do.
Always on the move,
busy like a bee.

Keeps me fit,
keeps me alert,
but I guess today
my limbs rebel
because as it seems,
I’m just tripping.

Road trip reflections 10:17pm

 

Alone with my thoughts
as the night lights flicker by.
I’ve traveled this road alone before,
but this time it’s different with her here.
I can’t relax, I’m on duty.
There’s no downtime.
I can’t really rest.

A full moon hangs in a starless sky.
It seems lonely without its companions
as I am without mine.
I miss him terribly!

I’m hoping this trip
brings some much needed closure.
The emotional and financial cost
is much too high
to drag this out indefinitely.

The busy streets
bring back mixed memories
of a life that was bittersweet.
I’ve accomplished a lot here
but now my new life
eagerly awaits my return.
I miss my new home.
I’m ready to move on.

Wind-swept

 

She stormed in
windswept and out of breath.
It’s been that way for her lately;
she’s juggling a lot
but somehow seems to pull it off.

Logistics and lack of time
get the best of her sometimes
but by the grace of God
she keeps pressing on.

She’s a special person —
tough yet sweet,
competitive yet fair,
fierce yet humble.

I like what I see in her,
yet it amazes me that sometimes
she doesn’t realize her own worth.

She’s made of ‘good stock’;
she’s a gem to be treasured;
she’s a fierce worrior;
she’s my dear friend.

About to snap!

image

 

I’m not on my game today.
100 crazy minions got the best of me.
Well, actually, there were only 10,
but I could have sworn there were hundreds.

There’s one in particular
who reaaaallly gets under my skin.
I’m convinced he does things
just to irritate me.

Then there’s another
who’s definitely related
to the Tasmanian Devil —
she’s totally out of control!!

I’m being tested.
I’m being pushed to my limit.
I’ve been holding it together
but I fear I’m about to snap.

I’m tired!!!
